Horror films make for particularly tortured productions. Historically, they have higher odds of spooking out their cast, crew, and audiences. The late '60s and the '70s were a particularly ripe time for genre films that unsettled both on and off camera; movies like "Rosemary's Baby," "The Exorcist," and "The Omen" were all released within 10 years of each other, and remain some of the best-regarded horror films of all time. As we'll see, these productions were also plagued by on-set strangeness,...
